Former head of NASA acknowledges climate crime

Help make climate ecocide a crime - become an Earth Protector now.


Jim Hansen and climate crime

Soon to be published: Unprecedented Crime: Climate Science Denial and Game Changers for Survival, by Dr. Peter Carter and Dr. Elizabeth Woodworth - in his foreword, former head of NASA Jim Hansen makes the case: burning fossil fuels pushes us beyond critical tipping points, setting in motion irreversible changes. He goes onto outline the criminality of continued carbon release by dangerous industrial activity despite full knowledge of the consequences. This is a very concerted indicator: Jim Hansen goes beyond existing law to look at what is missing. His conclusion: accountability for climate crime is the next legal step to address the serious consequences arising from Carbon Major activity. 

Meanwhile in the UN, the new UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres in his 2018  New Year address made it clear where he stood in his 'Red Alert' speech: “climate change is moving faster than we are."  No longer are the most serious harms of concern arising during conflict or  war  - now, they occur during peacetime, and the UN has a role to take forward the missing crime to ensure justice.  

Update from the United Nations

Our last few days here at the UN in New York have begun to place missing parts into the bigger picture.  Meetings during our fortnight at the Assembly of State Parties (ASP) to the International Criminal Court have shed light on critical aspects, including how to best address the severe under-representation of Small Island Developing States.
